My Booky Wook
My Booky Wook A Memoir of Sex, Drugs, and Stand-up By Brand, Russell Book - 2009 792.76028 B817m 2009 All copies in use Availability details Holds: 2 on 4 copies

Annotation:This irreverent memoir is a story not simply of struggle but also of redemption, a testament to the difficulty of discovering what you want from life and the remarkable power of a bloody-minded determination to get it. My Booky Wook is a giddy trip through the brilliant mind of one of Britain's most valuable exports.

Kveikur By Sigur Rós (Musical group) Music CD - 2013 Icelandic CD Popular SIGURROS Available in some locations

Annotation:Call the genre whatever you want (art-rock, post-rock, experimental, ambient, downright tasty), Iceland's Sigur Rós is one of the best bands of the current generation. Big claim, I know, but Kveikur only solidifies the band's stature as one of the genre's best. If you like Sigur Rós, go ahead and pick this record up.

Kasher in the Rye
Kasher in the Rye The True Tale of A White Boy From Oakland Who Became A Drug Addict, Criminal, Mental Patient, and Then Turned 16 By Kasher, Moshe Book - 2012 792.76028092 K1919k 2012 Available in some locations

I Remember You
I Remember You A Ghost Story By Yrsa Sigurðardóttir Book - 2014 FICTION YRSA 2014 Available in some locations

Annotation:Yrsa will stun readers once again with this out-of-this-world ghost story that will leave you shivering. In an isolated village in the Icelandic Westfjords, three friends set to work renovating a rundown house. But soon, they realize they are not as alone as they thought.

Booky Wook 2
Booky Wook 2 This Time It's Personal By Brand, Russell Book - 2010 792.7028092 B8173b 2010 Available in some locations

Annotation:My Booky Wook was one of the most revered and successful celebrity autobiographies of all time (not including the Bible or anything by Oprah). The honesty, mayhem, and scandal made it as riveting and fanciful as anything found in fiction.In Booky Wook 2, this award-winning achievement is surpassed as Russell charts his rise from crack-house junky to Hollywood star, indulging in sexual excesses that make Caligula seem like a prudish spinster.
